Abstinence did not happen for me until I
made a commitment to it. I realized that
I would have abstinence until something
was a bit too uncomfortable for me to face
or feel. Then I would have a slip. So it
became a game for me. Was this event
or circumstance enough to justify another
slip? Sure, why not? That's the nature of
the disease. Everything and anything was
an excuse to eat.
It wasn't until I made a commitment to
abstinence that I was forced to find my
solutions in the Twelve Steps and really
let go of my addiction. I'm grateful to my
Higher Power that I hit the bottom I did.
By accepting the truth about myself and
my food addiction, I am now free to live in
ONE DAY AT A TIME ...
I will renew my commitment by receiving the gift of abstinence and practicing my program to the best of my ability.
